    So sorry to hear about Jacqueline’s death. Just thinking about her brings back good memories. I can remember my Mama, Irene N Oldham and I visiting Jacqueline, Fermon and Wayne when I was young and Wayne and I playing together.

    We will certainly miss her until the day we join her in Heaven.
